Questions about yum-cron

Hi,

Up until now I always kept my servers up-to-date manually. Currently I'm
experimenting with yum-cron to automate this process.

I read through various online tutorials, and now I have a couple questions.

1. As far as I know, when editing /etc/yum/yum-cron.conf, I can only use
the following value for update_cmd :

update_cmd = default

If I understand this correctly, 'update_cmd = security' would have no
effect, since contrary to RHEL, CentOS doesn't provide the necessary
metadata to operate the distinction between security updates and other
updates like mere bugfixes.

Package security scanner for CentOS docker containers

Hi List,

I’m looking for a command line package security scanner for CentOS docker
containers.

Is there any utility out there for checking alpine packages in an alpine
docker container against the cve database?

Tools similar to debsecan would be ideal (<a href="https://github.com/allthings/" title="https://github.com/allthings/">https://github.com/allthings/</a>
debsecan), i.e a tool that can be launched from the host machine, will
connect to a container on the host, or start up a docker image on the
hosts, scan the packages and report CVEs relevant to each package.

Thanks in advance,
Traiano

Definitive guide to setting up FTPIS on vsftpd

I have a new CentOS 7.4 (recently upgraded to 7.5) system that I have been struggling with in configuring vsftpd for FTPS Implicit (port 990).

Using Filezilla client, I get:

Error: GnuTLS error -15: An unexpected TLS packet was received.

CentOS 7.5 gui login root only

Taking first steps on CentOS 7 1804.

Logging into the Gnome/Gnome classic desktop from gdm works only for root. For other users, the screen flashes and the login screen returns. KDE/Plasma login is successful but ends up with a black screen with mouse pointer while all desktop processes appear to be running.

The CentOS 7 system is running in a CentOS6 KVM virtual machine, which may be the problem. I have no physical machine for testing right now.

These logins work for non-root users when the system is built from the CentOS 7 DVD.

'gnome-daemon-settings' Doesn't Start When Attempting To Make Changes

All,

So here's the issue:

The system - a Dell Precision M4800

The OS - CentOS 6.9, ver. 2.6.32-696.28.1

The problem - Whenever the user tries to make system changes (display,
mouse orientation, etc.), the gnome-settings-daemon pops up and says it
can't run, and the changes never occur.

Password recovery trick not working on CentOS

Hi,

I remember back in the days, there was a neat trick to recover a lost
root password, or more exactly, redefine a new password for root.

1. In the bootloader, boot the system with the 'init=/bin/bash' kernel
argument.

2. Remount the root partition in read-write mode:

# mount -o remount,rw /

3. Set the password for root:

# passwd

4. Remount the root partition in read-only mode:

# mount -o remount,ro /

5. Switch off the computer.

I tried this out of curiosity on a CentOS 7 sandbox machine, and this
doesn't seem to work anymore.

move LDAP service to new server

On my old Centos 7 server I had set up a LDAP database for user authentication
by other services (the server locally uses normal PAM authenticatin).

I set it up originally from a web page describing how to set up an LDAP server
for use with MS Outlook clients (which never worked)

Is there any (easy to follow) instructions anywhere to tell me how to back up
this service and restore it onto a new one?

Yum dependency failure installing latest LibreOffice

Mailing list config question / minor rant

The <a href="mailto: ... at centos dot org"> ... at centos dot org</a> seems to be *uniquely* configured to hold messages with
a (single) CC to self. ALL of the other mailing lists I am on have no problem
with a CC to self. My mailer software is configured to CC to myself. This is
*only* a problem with the CentOS list. Why is this? Yes, I know it is *normal*
to configure Mailman to hold messages with a *long* CC list, since that is a
common tactic by spammers. But a CC of one? Really? Do spammers bother with
CC's with only one address?

Various applications freeze regularly since CentOS 7.5 update

Hi,

since we have upgraded to CentOS 7.5 (from CentOS 7.4), we experience
frequent, but not reproducible, freezes of various applications:
Thunderbird, Firefox, LibreOffice. Usually the application process
keeps running with PPID 1 w/o being killable (not even with SIGKILL).
Freezes of Thunderbird are usually followed by Firefox crashing a few
minutes later.

Update announcement request

Hi,

Can the updated files added to the Centosplus repo be sent to the announcement list please? I can't find them announced in any of the other lists.

Related to that, a new kernel was released to the Centosplus repo, kernel-plus-3.10.0-862.2.3.el7.centos.plus, but perf and python-perf were not updated for the new kernel. Is this an oversight? perf doesn't complain about mismatched versions though.

CentOS 7 system unsable after "yum update" (with some errors on the way)

God dag,

I've been trying to run a "yum update" (without additional arguments) to install the latest system updates on my CentOS 7 machine. It's no going so well. What happens is this:

1. The process gets stuck a couple of places as a "post" script or similar tries to run "dbus-send"; the problem looks awfully similar to what's described in <a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1186018" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1186018">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1186018</a>. More specifically, this happens on installation of package "setroubleshoot" and "avahi". As a workaround, I'm using a manual kill to get rid of the hung process.

ARM64 CentOS AltArch release 7.5

Hi,

I have two questions:

(1) In 7.3 CentOS released a rootfs tar for ARM64. I can no longer find
this under the 7.5 release. Furthermore, I could also not find anything on
the ISO that seems rootfs-like in any near complete state. The closest was
the LiveOS/rootfs.img, but it seems this is not a complete fs as yum is
missing components, for example.

So my question is: Is there any way to still use CentOS releases on new
ARM64 development environments (without EFI boot support)?

(2) In terms of UEFI firmware support in the ARM64 world (e.g.

Clone a custom CentOS 7 desktop using G4L over FTP

Hi,

A couple months ago, I migrated our local school (two servers, 20
desktop clients) from Slackware 14.1 to CentOS 7. The desktop clients
are running a customized lightweight desktop based on Xfce:

<a href="https://blog.microlinux.fr/poste-de-travail-xfce-centos-7/" title="https://blog.microlinux.fr/poste-de-travail-xfce-centos-7/">https://blog.microlinux.fr/poste-de-travail-xfce-centos-7/</a>

Home directories are all on the server, and authentication is
centralized. Everything works fine so far.

With Slackware I had found a neat trick to install the desktop clients.
First I installed and configured one single client PC from start to
finish.

New mail server slow connecting to web server

Having successfully killed my (Centos 7) mail server I have had to build a new
one.

Thankfully I had a server build that I was about to start configuring as my
new web server.

I appear to have set everything up okay, Exim, SpamAssassin, ClamAv, Dovecot,
Postgresql, httpd etc.

Everything appears fine apart from when I try to connect to my web server.
Whatever tried to connect suffers from a delay, and either times out or works
eventually.

I started off with problems connecting Exim to Postgresql on the web server.

yum hangs and results in problems

My live mail server was due an update so I ran

yum update

All seemed file so I told it to proceed. HOwever it then hung for over 30
minutes.

I stopped the update and tried again. It complained about problems with the
update, so I tried

yum --skip-broken -y update

which then hung at a different place. After some Googling I tried

yum-complete-transaction

and

package-cleanup --cleandupes

both of which failed. I then using my "Microsoft" head I thought I'd try
rebooting to see if that fixes it.

You can convert to local time with $(date -d '2018-05-24 12:00 UTC')

Root cause : a HDD in the array used to host the VMs failed, and there
is no hot-swap capabilities, so full "power off" is required to replace
the failed HDD and then start the rebuild operation.

CentOS Atomic Host (7.1804), a lean operating system designed to run
Linux containers, built from standard CentOS 7 RPMs, and tracking the
component versions included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host.

This release, which is based on the RHEL 7.5 source code, now ships
without any baked-in Kubernetes rpms, which makes it simpler for users
to layer their preferred Kubernetes or OpenShift packages onto the
host.

Vsftpd vs. iptables firewall script

Hi,

I'm currently setting up a local FTP server, to receive disk images sent
with G4L (Ghost4Linux).

This server has been running Slackware Linux before, and the Vsftpd
setup was relatively simple.

With CentOS things seem to be slightly different, so I'm currently
trying to work things out. For the moment, two things seem to be
creating problems, the simple iptables firewall and SELinux.

When I disable the firewall and SELinux, Vsftp works as expected. So far
so good.

Now let's tackle this one dragon at a time. First the firewall.

Our network uses a transparent HTTP/HTTPS proxy with a local AC. We can

C 7, selinux, and rpc.gssd

Folks,

As systems are upgraded, we're getting a ton of complaints
(fortunately, we're in permissive mode) that would break everything.
All of them involve rpc.gssd, and I see a number of bugs listed when I
search.

Note that I first saw this on a RHEL system, but now I'm seeing it on
CentOS 7.

place of other RH sources

Out of curiosity - does someone known where the sources of other RH products
are placed? RHEL sources are going into git.centos.org but what about e.g. RH
OpenStack Platform packages or others products?

How to build nss-util.i686 on Centos 7 with mock

Hello list,

I'm currently trying to build the i686 version of

<a href="http://vault.centos.org/7.5.1804/os/Source/SPackages/nss-util-3.34.0-2.el7.src.rpm" title="http://vault.centos.org/7.5.1804/os/Source/SPackages/nss-util-3.34.0-2.el7.src.rpm">http://vault.centos.org/7.5.1804/os/Source/SPackages/nss-util-3.34.0-2.e...</a>

The x86_86 version works with mock, but I cannot figure out
how to build the i686 version.

best regards,

Martin

Virt SIG packages tagged for release not landing on altarch mirror.

Hi,
just noticed that <a href="http://cbs.centos.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=22693" title="http://cbs.centos.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=22693">http://cbs.centos.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=22693</a> ,
which is tagged for release, landed on mirrors for x86_64 but it's missing
in aarch64 and ppc64le.
The same build shows up correctly in buildlogs for those arches.

Can you please check?

Mountpoint.io: Software Defined Storage event in Vancouver in August

Forwarding on an announcement from a colleague, for those of you
interested in Software-defined Storage:

Our first mountpoint is coming!
Software-defined Storage (SDS) is changing the traditional way we
think of storage. Decoupling software from hardware allows you to
choose your hardware vendors and provides enterprises with more
flexibility.

Attend mountpoint on August 27 - 28, 2018 in Vancouver, BC, before
Open Source Summit North America for this first time event.

The right way to deal with in-house development

Ok, what's the "correct" way to deal with systems developed in-house, that
have their own sets up subdirectories.

And why, for that matter, does running sealert give me the full path to
the executable, like openjdk... but *not* the full path to the file it's
trying to operate on, and I'm left going "ok, where was the file it
deleted?

CentOS community newsletter - Call for content

As part of our community outreach effort, we are rebooting the 'CentOS
Pulse' newsletter, which was discontinued about 8 years ago. The purpose
of this newsletter is to provide a high-level update on what CentOS is
up to, to the peripheral audience - including the tech press - who are
less connected with the daily life of the project.

If your SIG would like to provide an update, or if you have something
else you'd like to share with this audience, please do so here:

kernel-lt from ELRepo vs. GRUB: define default boot kernel

Hi,

After upgrading my workstation to CentOS 7.5 (1804), I had to upgrade my
kernel from vanilla to kernel-lt from ELRepo. My NVidia GeForce 210
would only work with the driver provided by NVidia, which in turn
required a more recent kernel than 3.0.10.

OT Hardware Forum

Hey Y'all,

Is there a forum where I can discuss hardware and CentOS 7? I'm
considering building a new desktop system specifically designed for
CentOS 7 and the Folding At Home project.

This mail list seams to be oriented toward CentOS software issues not
hardware discussions.

Persisting Routes In A Routing Table Other Than The Default

I need to add persistent routes to a policy routing table. I can add
rules to an IP policy table after installing NetworkManager-config-
routing-rules; but I have not found how to add routes to a table other
than the specific table.

Manually I do a:
ip route add default via 192.168.1.6 dev ens192 table pods

Rules load automatically via the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/rules-
{interface} files.
